From essential safety equipment to oil and food, workers at the Port Authority of Guam have been working tirelessly to make sure that the island is consistently receiving the supplies it needs.
And on Monday, May 4 several community members treated these front line workers with a donation of ice cream.
Agana Heights Mayor Paul McDonald and his family donated 440 cups of ice cream to port employees to thank them for being on the frontlines of the pandemic.
The cases of ice cream were delivered to the Port through Grab N Grub, a local food delivery service.
Port Authority General Manager Rory Respicio, whose favorite ice cream flavor is chocolate, thanked the McDonald family for their generous donation and for thinking about port employees during this time.
“We’re very appreciative of Mayor Paul McDonald of Agana Heights. His daughter, Stacy, and husband, who is actually the harbormaster here at the port. And this ice cream from Grab N’ Grub. I think this is their way of recognizing port employees as being frontliners and the work that the port does to ensure that the supply chain in Guam and the region remains the same. We’re very grateful for this donation,” Respicio said.
The McDonald family plans to make more donations to frontliners on Tuesday as part of #GivingTuesdayNow, a global generosity movement created in response to COVID-19.
